In order to decompress the spine and release pressure from the afflicted nerves, traction therapy, a non-surgical procedure, uses gentle pulling pressures. Many ailments, including herniated discs, sciatica, stenosis, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tight muscles, have been successfully treated with this therapy.
Spennetta Family Care Chiropractic Clinic has transformed the lives of patients that have walked through our doors. Since our inception, we have focused on transforming incapacitating conditions into a new view of life.
Forms of Traction Therapy & Our Offerings
Our clinic offers a range of traction therapies, including manual traction, intersegmental traction, cox flexion/distraction, and specialized traction for carpal tunnel syndrome. For more severe cases, we also offer spinal decompression on the DRX9000.
Manual traction involves the use of a therapist’s hands to gently pull on the patient’s body to alleviate pressure and tension in the spine. Intersegmental traction uses a specially designed table that allows for gentle rolling and stretching of the spine to increase circulation and promote healing.
Cox flexion/distraction is a technique that uses a specially designed table to gently flex and distract the spine to relieve pressure on the affected nerves. This technique is particularly effective for patients with herniated discs or spinal stenosis.
The DRX9000 spinal decompression procedure may be recommended for patients with more severe spinal problems, such as ruptured or bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, or sciatica. It is possible for the discs to regain their most healthy, corrected states during this procedure by applying a controlled amount of traction to the spine using a computer-controlled table.
Specialized Treatments & Care
For those who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, which is defined by compression of the median nerve in the wrist, we also provide specialist traction therapy solutions. The wrist is gradually extended and decompressed during this procedure using a hand-held traction instrument. Through this operation, the median nerve is released from pressure, which lessens Carpal Tunnel Syndrome’s pain, numbness, and tingling.
Our knowledgeable chiropractors and therapists collaborate closely with each patient to develop a customized treatment plan that takes into consideration their unique needs. We advocate a holistic treatment approach that deals with the overt and subtle causes of pain and discomfort.
Traction therapy is a secure, non-invasive treatment option that can aid in easing pain, boosting mobility, and generally enhancing the quality of life.
